1ºWorkshop H2Smart project at the University of Granada

H2 Smart – An energy efficiency model for transport fleets

“The renewable hydrogen as an efficient solution in the design of a Smart City and its positive impact on a new model of sustainable mobility with vehicles emission 0” as a conclusion to a WorkShop, in which representatives of city councils, public entities and companies of Granada participated.

 

Iº Workshop on Hydrogen in Granada, organized by Letter Engineers

Within the framework of the H2 Smart Innovation project, led by Letter Ingenieros and supported by the Smart Cities Cluster of Andalusia and the University of Granada, the first H2Smart Workshop has taken place. in order to further advance the development of feasibility study on hydrogen technology as a real market solution to meet the challenge on the storage of energy from renewable sources.

The meeting, which took place on 12 December in the Cloisters Hall of the Faculty of Sciences of Granada, was a success because it raised a common interest among the more than 30 attendees: MAKE OUR CITIES UN HABITAT FREE NOx , EFFICIENT AND SUSTAINABLE.

The development of the Day.

For the development of the Workshop, Letter engineers opted for an unusual format, organizing attendees in work tables of common interests. The purpose was to reach a final conclusion, elaborated from the different profiles and points of view that were in the room.

In the first place we have the welcome of Mrs. María Carmen Carrión, illustrious Dean of the Faculty of Sciences who showed its sensitivity to renewable energy, research at the university, business involvement and the real possibilities of hydrogen as a totally clean and environmentally friendly alternative in this energy transition. He also thanked the presence of City Councils, Entities and companies.

Subsequently, Dr. Carlos Funes, head of the Open Innovation Unit of the National Hydrogen Center, was responsible for exposing renewable hydrogen technology and the costs of its generation. With this he demonstrated the profitable and ecological application of this technology in fleets of public buses and fleets of garbage trucks. From his speech, two interesting conclusions are drawn for the use of hydrogen in the development and planning of a Smart City:

  1. "The use of renewable energy to produce hydrogen and, in turn, use that hydrogen to the mobility sector can generate a positive business case today"
  2. "The most interesting approach for regions and cities is the production of renewable hydrogen and its consumption in captive fleets of buses and garbage trucks."

Later he spoke D. Juan Carlos García Abril, Director of Innovation and Projects Letter Engineers, who presented the project and its viability Smart H2 for Granada. It is presented as a great solution for the decarbonisation of the city and compliance with restrictive European policies. In addition, Juan Carlos García as a citizen of Granada, highlighted the serious problem of pollution that has Granada and its metropolitan area. Since 2008 the limits in NOx (called the invisible poison) and suspended particles have been exceeded, obtaining values similar to those of Madrid, Barcelona or Bilbao.

TABLE COUNCILS: Moderated by D. German Luzon González, professor and coordinator of Chemical Engineering at the University of Granada, and composed of representatives of various municipalities in the area of Granada. They aimed to know the reality of our municipalities, their concerns and management tools and financing used in the governance of our cities, in order to fit the viability of the H2 Smart project in the planning of Smart Cities. As a most important conclusion, it should be noted that all the representatives of this table agreed on the difficulty of reaching financing or approval of budgets to carry out projects of this nature, since they work more in the face of the citizen, than for environmental improvement a city or town. In addition, both mayors and technical highlighted the lack of staff or external experts in certain subjects, having an engineer for all, and the need to bring these projects through a common and applicable to all regulations. Finally, also it highlighted the lack of awareness in our citizens, not being aware that more than half a million deaths occur annually caused by pollution problems and air quality.

Table participants: Agenda 21 Local Town Hall of Granada, Armilla City Council, Salar City Council, Padul City Council and Albolote City Council.

TABLE ENTITIES: Moderated by Ms. María Ávila Montoro, Commercial Director of Letter Engineers, and formed by public entities of the Granada area. They aimed to know first-hand about future environmental planning policies and the challenges they face as financial managers. This table talked about the funds of aid that, to date, exist to be able to undertake projects of this type. The 20M € that were still available in the announcement for Intelligent Networks (Andalusian Energy Agency) and the Edusi Funds, which contemplate the execution of projects that improve air quality, were highlighted. In conclusion, it was emphasized that have a common strategic plan would be complicated by the multitude of actors are involved in the development of the (City Councils, Transport Consortium Companies, etc).  In addition, it was also specified that, in smaller municipalities, Sustainable Mobility Plans have been developed more focused on Crosswalk, Bike Rails and parking, instead of others aimed at solving the mobility driven by Diesel / Petrol combustion vehicle.

Table participants: Diputación de Granada, Cluster of Sustainable Construction of Andalusia, Provincial Energy Agency of Granada and Inagra.

COMPANY TABLE: Moderated by Don Juan Carlos García Abril, Director of Innovation and Projects of Letter Engineers, and formed by companies from Granada which represent the energy sector of the province. Its aim was to know the business vision of experts in management and installation of renewable energies, on the H2 Smart project and its viability in the province. During the development of this table, all the participants (who in some way generate energy from renewable energy) saw in the H2Smart project the main solution for the storage of energy in the form of renewable hydrogen. On the other hand, the companies highlighted the competitive advantage of hydrogen as a source of motor power in mobility compared to the electric vehicle. And it is that these vehicles not only have greater autonomy if not also have less charging time. On the other hand, the table entrepreneurs showed very interested in knowing actual data for technical and financial feasibility. This was intended to analyze the return on investment and to answer the question of: Would you be willing to invest in hydrogen vehicles? For this, D. Juan Carlos García, invited them to read the Business Plans which have been developed at the National Hydrogen Center.

Table participants: Grupo Cuerva, Construcciones Otero, Andasol, Windhunter, Iberdrola and A.E. Jérez del Marquesado.

End of the day and conclusions:

At 12:20 in the morning it was reached at the end of the workshop with a general conclusion of the three tables:

Renewable hydrogen as a clean energy source and zero-emission cycle, along with other technologies for sustainable mobility is the future in designing strategic plans of our Smart Cities. All this will be possible when a pilot project is developed which demonstrates the technical and financial viability of the great challenge posed by modal changes and air quality

Streetlights history: from Catalan Society of Gas to Barcelona Energy

Streetlights history: from Catalan Society of Gas to Barcelona Energy

We have all seen in movies those oil lamps or candles lighting the streets of cities, but when is street lighting modernized in Spain? What was the first public tender to manage this facility? In Letter Engineers we recently arrived at Barcelona City Council and we have found very interesting data.

We must go back to the nineteenth century, namely the year 1826, so that in Barcelona lights as street lighting system the first gas lamp. According to historians, it is the first time that the streets are lit enough to not feel unprotected.

The City Council of Barcelona convened in 1841 a public lighting contest won by a French industrial engineer. This one founded two years later the company Catalan Society for gas lighting. We currently know it as Naturgy or, the most backward, by Gas Natural Fenosa. As a curiosity, to comment that the street lighting service comes to Barcelona before running water to homes.

During the twentieth century, with the discovery of electric light, began the decline of gas lights since this new system was much cheaper, comfortable and durable. The gas discharge lamps arrive in which, through electricity, the luminescence phenomenon is achieved. One of the first gases used is mercury vapor which, for those who do not know, emits with a wave in which the ultraviolet predominates. Later improves efficiency in street lighting with the arrival of sodium vapor and its characteristic orange color. A few years ago, and it entered the new century, break into the LED technology in street lighting.

Because of the energy transition we live currently marketing energy undergoes radical changes daily. For more than 20 years, the electricity sector in Spain has been liberalized and, nevertheless, it has not been an effective Law as such. Therefore new models to appear Energy Barcelona have emerged. The council manages the generation and marketing in their own facilities. To generate uses different renewable sources such as photovoltaic and wind. However, it is methane from garbage which it gets its greatest green energy.

In Letter Engineers committed to new energy management models for municipal street lighting. We believe that these new models have a lot to say and here we will be to help them in this difficult way.

Smart Territories – Efficient Solutions by Letter Engineers

Smart Territories – Efficient Solutions by Letter Engineers

“NATIONAL PLAN OF INTELLIGENT TERRITORIES. A strategy for a “smart Spain” that seeks to maximize the opportunities offered by the proper use of digital platforms to provide better public services in the city and in rural areas, and where Letter Engineers has much to offer”

Energy Efficiency: the starting point of an Intelligent Territory

Since 2007, European 20/20/20 targets were established:

  • 20% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (in relation to 1990 levels)
  • 20% renewable energy in the EU
  • 20% improvement in energy efficiency

In Spain, there have been multiple strategies and announcements, focused on the Energy Efficiency of our towns and cities, since consuming more efficiently helps us to achieve the targets and we also contribute to reduce our Carbon Footprint.

“We have a common challenge: to plan, manage and govern our cities in a sustainable way, maximizing economic opportunities and minimizing environmental damage”

All this has given way to the use of digital platforms able to manage efficiently:

  • ENERGY CONSUMPTION OF PUBLIC LIGHTING
  • EFFICIENT WATER CONSUMPTION IN THE IRRIGATION SYSTEM OF PARKS AND GARDENS.
  • EFFICIENT ROUTES IN WASTE MANAGEMENT
  • INTELLIGENT ROUTES IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT

hence, the goal of transforming traditional cities into “SMART CITY”.

To make all of us much clearer, a Smart city is a sustainable and innovative city, since it uses Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and other means to improve decision-making, the efficiency of operations, the provision of urban services and their competitiveness.


Although it is many steps to go in parallel in Spain it has unveiled NATIONAL PLAN OF TERRITORIES INTELLIGENT, which is part of the digital strategy for Intelligent Spain and it is aligned with the described context and target of the Smart City.

What is a Smart Territory?

The term intelligent territory comes after the peculiarity of our cities and our environment, since the city must be treated as an entity whose boundaries go beyond proper limits. All this is because our cities are included in a much larger area connected to other nearby municipalities.

Another new feature included in this National Plan is the integration of strategy in our rural areas, with the approach of developing a policy named SMART VILLAGES. And it is that 82.8% of the Spanish municipalities are rural and they occupy 72.8% of the total area of the country.

What role does Letter Engineers in the development of Intelligent Territories?

Since the beginning in 2013, LETTER INGENIEROS has opted for technological innovation as an intelligent solution in the energy management of a city or town.

Our team is not only made up of engineers and environmentalists who are experts in energy efficiency, but also supported by the management platforms developed by our Innovation and Development department, composed of computer engineers and experts in the development of applications.

This is the case, for example, of the EFILUX intelligent management platform, which allows the visualization and search of lighting inventory as well as energy management and maintenance.

This platform has been developed with the latest technology to work quickly and efficiently, with a simple, intuitive and clean interface. It also allows to visulise absolutely all the characteristics of any point of light, control center or part of the installation as well as to manage the electronic invoices and to locate disagreements.

Being a management platform of own development allows us to adapt it to the needs of each customer, being functional for another type of management, such as: EFFICIENT MANAGEMENT OF IRRIGATION OF PARKS AND GARDENS, among other functions.

The proposed Telemanagement and Energy Efficiency system will allow a complete management of the maintenance from the control center as well as from the work posts of the maintenance staff, both in their facilities and on the street.

Letter Ingenieros is committed to the smart development of our cities and rural environments as the only solution to sustainable development.

Nuevo código de la Edificación, 2018

El nuevo CTE 2018, hacia el consumo “poco” nulo

Como sabéis hace unos días el Ministerio sacó a audiencia pública el nuevo texto del Código Técnico de la Edificación más conocido como CTE. Ya se han manifestado diferentes voces y ahora es el turno que demos nuestra opinión desde Letter Ingenieros.

CTE 2018

Hace un año hacíamos nuestro propio análisis, puedes verlo aquí (http://letteringenieros.es/los-5-anos-revisar-cte-se-acaban/). Básicamente se mantiene gran parte del análisis en este borrador. Lo primero que llama la atención es el nombre que le han dado a la HE1, cambian la palabra “limitación” por “control”. Esto ya adelanta que ahora lo que se limita es el consumo, un error desde mi punto de vista y que dista mucho de lo que quiere Europa: primero limitamos demanda al máximo (15 kWh/m2 como dice Passivhaus sea demasiado… vale), y después esa poca energía la combatimos con renovables. Para nada este CTE va en esa línea, lo dicho un gran error y una gran oportunidad perdida.

Se introducen en la HE1 dos conceptos nuevos. El control solar es un avance, pero poner ahora un coeficiente global de pérdidas Kg me recuerda a la normativa del año 1979. Me parece que no se puede asegurar la limitación de la demanda porque no considera ni la orientación ni el % de huecos ni la estanquidad del edificio … esto más que un avance me parece ir para atrás.

Analicemos otros aspectos importantes. En cuanto a quien aplica, se ha mejorado el tema de rehabilitaciones para que no se sigan haciendo tantas trampas, pero el cambio de uso debería asimilarse a edificación nueva. El tema de renovables ahora se abre a otras tecnologías en la HE4 y HE5 sin citar que tiene que ser con energía solar.

Hay un tema que no termino de entender: En las condiciones de uso de un edificio  sabemos que necesitamos menos calefacción cuando tenemos mayor carga interna.  Sin embargo el nuevo CTE nos permite consumir más a medida que estas cargas pasan de bajas/medias/altas. La verdad que esto de las cargas puede dar lugar a mucho trampeo y deberían dejarlo mejor definido. Lo mismo ocurre con los valore límite de U, me da la sensación que en algunas zonas climáticas son menos restrictivos que en la anterior versión de 2013.

Un tema clave en el estándar alemán Passivhaus es la hermeticidad del edificio. Hemos dicho muchas veces que es necesario en el CTE se exija el ensayo de forma obligatoria y que este valor no se deje en el aire. Al menos que se le de más importancia. Desde la Plataforma Española de Passivhaus valoran la modificación como un importante avance, pero echan en falta una limitación temporal en el cumplimiento de los objetivos y unas pautas a seguir.

No quiero concluir tan negativo ya que hay aspectos positivos que ya iremos desgranando, pero hoy me he querido centrar en cosas que no comparto y que esperemos que con las alegaciones se mejoren.

Y vosotros,  ¿que opináis? En Letter Ingenieros queremos conocer tú opinión.

Certificados CMVP, CEM y Passivhaus. Mi experiencia

Certificados CMVP, CEM y Passivhaus. Mi experiencia

En este post, desde el punto de vista de opinión, vamos a repasar tres de los más importantes certificados internacionales que ha día de hoy tenemos a nuestra disposición los que queremos especializarnos en eficiencia energética

CMVP es el certificado del mundo EVO, que es la organización que desarrolla un procedimiento para la medida y verificación de ahorros energéticos.

CEM son las iniciales inglesas de Certificado Gestor Energético. Tanto CMVP como CEM pertenecen a la AAE (Asociación de Ingenieros Energéticos) que tiene sede en EEUU.

En mi caso obtuve el CMVP en 2011, mientras que, actualmente, me encuentro en proceso para obtener el CEM, puesto que me examino el próximo 2 de junio en Barcelona. Por tanto hay cosas que hasta que no las termine no las puedo valorar, pero por ahora ya tengo una idea clara de por dónde se mueve…

Por último, el certificado Designer Passivhaus (titulo que obtuve en 2017) tiene un enfoque totalmente orientado al diseño y evaluación de edificios de consumo casi nulo. Passivhaus es una organización que surgió hace unos 30 años en Alemania y que ya se ha extendido a todo el mundo.

Hablemos de ¿cómo conseguir los certificados? En los tres casos tienes que pasar por un curso de formación y además pagar derechos de examen. En mi caso EVO fue más caro porque eran los inicios, pero hoy en día todos los cursos rondan los 1.800€ más unos 200€ de tasas de examen. Otro tema común a todos ellos es que hay una puntuación mínima bastante alta para aprobar (7 sobre 10) y además en los tres casos puedes tener los libros durante las 4 horas que dura el examen.

Ahora vamos a centrarnos en los contenidos y su utilidad en el trabajo. La duración del curso en Passivhaus es de unas 90 horas, mientras que en los dos restantes se reduce a la mitad más o menos. Desde mi punto de vista los dos primeros tienen un enfoque más orientado a ofrecer servicios exclusivos que sin el titulo no puedes hacer, mientras que Passivhaus te ofrece los fundamentos teóricos en los que se basa la energética edificatoria. Ten en cuenta que este último está desarrollado por físicos mientras que la AAE dispone de ingenieros, así que cada uno tiene su enfoque: fundamentos técnicos VS fundamentos prácticos.

En los últimos tiempos, las administraciones públicas están solicitando este tipo de certificados para poder optar a concursos públicos. Debido a ello las matriculaciones en estos cursos está aumentando en gran medida. No olvidemos que en torno a los certificados gira un gran negocio y que no acaba ahí la cos, pues en los tres casos tenemos que re-certifcarnos cada tres años.

Hoy en día la especialización es algo vital para que una empresa sobreviva. En Letter Ingenieros estamos comprometidos por conocer bien el mercado y por la formación de calidad, así que consideramos que certificarse en muy útil para diferenciarse de la competencia. 

Para terminar te contaré lo que yo haría si tuviera que elegir uno de ellos para comenzar mi especialización en energía. Si te dedicas a la eficiencia pero fuera del ámbito de los edificios huye del Passivhaus pues no tiene sentido. Estoy hablando de aquellos que trabajan en alumbrado público o industria. En este caso yo optaría por el CEM y hacer EVO como complemento o si vas a implantar medidas de ahorro. En el resto de casos, creo que elegir Passivhaus te va a dar un extra de conocimientos teóricos que ningún otro te puede ofrecer. Además de cara a la nueva normativa que ya llega, pienso que es el certificado con más recorrido que tendremos en España. Espero que te haya gustado, si tienes cualquier duda podemos hablarlo en los comentarios, en privado o en las redes sociales de Letter

New Announcement: Climate Projects

New Announcement: Climate Projects

The next day, April 10, 2018 will be the Call 2018 for the selection of Climate Projects, referring to projects to reduce CO2 emissions in Spain in diffuse sectors whose emissions reductions can be acquired under the FES-CO2 Carbon Fund.

Aid Program: Climate projects

The Climate Projects of the Carbon Fund for a Sustainable Economy (FES-CO2) are projects to reduce emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) developed in Spain.

The Climate Projects, promoted through the FES-CO2, are designed to mark a path of transformation of the Spanish productive system towards a low carbon model.

The climate projects will be located in Spain and will be developed in the so-called “diffuse sectors” (not subject to the European emission trading scheme), such as the transport, agriculture, residential or waste, among others.

The reductions of emissions acquired through the FES-CO2 will require the fulfillment of a series of requirements, among others, those established in article 7 of RD 1494/2011, of October 24, which regulates the Carbon Fund for a Sustainable Economy:

  • Be additional to those derived from the sectoral regulations established in the current legislation that apply to them.
  • Proceed from facilities and sectors not subject to the emissions trading scheme.
  • Be measurable and verifiable, so that they are reflected in the inventory of greenhouse gases in Spain.
  • They will be calculated in accordance with methodologies to be approved by the Governing Council.

There are two types of Climate Projects:

It corresponds to the project that includes one or several defined activities, with a specific start date for each of them.

It corresponds to an expanded approach to project that includes several activities that are progressively added to the program, allowing similar activities and are distributed in different geographical areas of Spain, can be grouped into the concept of a program. In addition, under this concept of program, the gradual adhesion of activities that fit into a common denominator is allowed, that is, they propose the same type of action.

The documentation will be updated at the time of opening of the call. In this way, on April 10 we will inform you again.

However, the approach will be similar to that of previous years so let’s prepare the models, Letter Engineers as always is here to advise you.
